ABOUT US: A NEW INTEGRATED
BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SERVICE


Huntingdon Behavioral Health was founded to provide psychiatric and psychological care to Floridians in desperate need of diagnoses and high quality treatment of mental illnesses.

It is our constant goal that through effective treatment patients achieve their highest level of functionality and independence. This achievement of this goal is made possible because of our unique model of care, by which psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners and licensed clinical social workers to each facility.

While at these facilities, our psychologists, psychiatrists, and psychiatric nurse practitioners serve as consultants to attending primary care physicians and nursing staff. What this means is that Huntingdon providers share their medical expertise with facility staff members. This, in turn, greatly improves the quality of care for patients.

After receiving an attending physician’s order, one of Huntingdon Behavioral Health’s psychologists performs an initial evaluation.

During these evaluations, our psychologists provide therapy and behavioral management. When clinically necessary, our psychiatrists or psychiatric nurse practitioners also perform initial assessments and psychotropic medication management, but our providers alone can’t operate Huntingdon’s robust health system.

Our in-house employees offer 24/7 support to our providers and the facilities where they serve. These employees work with our providers to offer integrated behavioral health services for over 200 skilled nursing facilities.

By using our robust in-house network and collaborating with the facilities and patients, we are able to successfully provide consistent, long term behavioral and mental health services. This benefits not only our patients, but also the communities in which they live.
